    very funny accent thanks hehehe ?

    The recipe for this mixture came from a governmental website but? I tried to search for it but couldn’t find it again. The best I remember it was 1.5-2 for all 3….but? the forms of all three are broken down further than commercial fertilizers so the plants can use them more efficiently. Thanks!

    Would you have calculated the npk for this recipe? If anyone has they? should share

    bone meal…..a? little too much southern in me I guess!

  • samyish 7 years ago

    I thought I heart that too but I? think he’s saying “Bone meal” With a really heavy accent.

  • Sorren11 7 years ago

    Thanks for the? info. Very helpful!

  • ease4144 7 years ago

    what is “bung meal” . . . is that what I heard???

  • sal39759 7 years ago

    I would try 1/4 of a cup (or a little less) for 3 gallons…..but this mix will not burn your plants if you use too much. ? Try experimenting with a couple of pots using different amounts and check the results you get!

    i went to the local ag store today and bought everything except the greensand which i forgot about. on the lime all they had was? “hydrated lime” will this work, as well? roughly 1/2 cup of fertilizer per 3gal of finished potting mix? Thanks.

    3.5 to 4.0?!?! WOW! The black clay? here is in the 7.5 to 8.5 range! Thanks for the info! I’ll use it as side dressing this next year and I’ll till some more in at the end of the year. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

  • sal39759 7 years ago

    ? I add it to my potting mix but you can also incorporate it into your row……using about a quart per 100 foot of row (if can also be used as a side dressing). If you have a high ph soil, I would reduce the lime and add sulfur to the mix. Here, my ph is around 3.5 – 4.0 and need the lime.

    Do you simply add a handful per tomato plant or broadcast it and till it in? I’ve been making compost for? the past few months and really don’t have enough to feed all of my plants for next spring. I’m definitely interested in trying this recipe of yours. The only issue I have is the lime: we have pretty alkaline soil here and I’ve been adding sulfur to get the pH down. Should I add a bit of sulfur to get help keep my pH down? Would it hurt the fertilizer mix? Thanks.

    Oh and thanks for the great video,? gonna give it a shot.

  • sal39759 7 years ago

    that conversion is way above my pay grade!! You would have to submit the mix to the same lab for analysis and then they could give you the proper application rate.? Sorry, Greg

  • sal39759 7 years ago

    I would go with 50 – 75 pounds to start… really don’t have to worry about too much… is slow release and won’t burn? the plants.

    U need to do a little? research…..using brain matter as a feed additive is what caused it. Since only one case of mad cow disease has been found in the US (which the cow was imported from Canada), I don’t think we have too much to worry about. You must have gotten your info from Oprah!

  • mansonhall22 7 years ago

    beware everyone-bone meal causes mad? cow disease

  • sal39759 7 years ago

    I got all the materials from my local farmer’s co-op. They carried everything onhand. Any farm and garden supply should carry? them or can order it for you.

  • chapulincolorado41 7 years ago

    can you tell me where to? purchase the Ingredients for this recipe?

  • recovercast 7 years ago

    Just to clarify that’s about 1 cup for every square? foot? I was just wondering.

  • sal39759 7 years ago

    I put approx. 1 cup per 1 sq. ft. of mix……Thanks?

  • Persimmonify 7 years ago

    Love your gardening videos. What quantity of your potting mix do you add 1 and 1/2 cups of fertilizer. ? Thanks!!!

  • mintvagoo 7 years ago

    Great video. I think I’ll try mixing it by snapping on a lid? and shacking it up.

  • sal39759 7 years ago

    Hey Julie,
    It’s spelled gypsum. It’s the same stuff that sheetrock is? made out of. Happy Growing!!!! Greg
